SPRING HIGHWAY UPDATES

Highway Department

Starting April 1 residents can put out yard compost materials on their regular refuse day. The material must be properly bundled for pickup. In addition, Amherst’s annual spring brush pickup will begin on May 22nd. Pickup will follow the same weekly schedule as residents’ refuse pickup regarding the day of the week. However it may take approximately two to three weeks for us to complete the whole Town. Please have brush, logs and stumps out for pickup by this date. The Town will collect large unmanageable piles of logs, brush, and tree stumps only. All material must be placed out the start of that week. We are going thru all areas of the Town one time only. No mixed piles containing lumber, concrete, railroad ties or non-organic materials will be collected. Leaves, small trimmings and other yard waste should be put in containers, paper yard waste bags or bundled for collection by Modern Corporation on a weekly basis. The Highway Department will not pick up these materials during this spring brush pickup.

Imagine Amherst - Comprehensive Plan Amendments

Planning Department

 
posted

by 
kschueler
 
Public comment and discussion about DRAFT Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan (Task 6) is being sought. Over the past few months the Committee has studied the commercial and mixed use areas shown in the Future Land Use Map (Figure 6) and developed recommendations to better distinguish areas by their scale, location, and neighborhood context. The Committee has proposed “typologies” to categorize these areas which consist of two forms: suburban and traditional, and four types: center, corridor, medium-scale node, and low-scale node. The Committee identified a current designation for each center and identified centers that might change or transform in the future. The Task 6.1 documents are located on the Imagine Amherst Website (click the link below) under "Work Products." Submit comments to the Town Planning Department, on the Imagine Amherst website, or on the Facebook page.
